From my personal collection: Early produced M35 army steel helmet in good condition. The helmet started as an apple green coated double decal helmet in 1937 but was overpainted with dark field green paint due regulations most likely in 1940 before the invasion of Western Europe. Therefore the party decal has been covered and is still visible under the paint. The eagle decal on the left side was left open and shows nice aging and patina. Inside the helmet a 1937 dated aluminum single band liner is original installed. The split pins remain straight and unmessed with. The leather is supple and shows normal wear, matching with the helmet. The chin strap is complete, maker mark is faded. Inside a nice and clear dome stamp is visible, dated 1937, just like the liner. Large and rare shell by ET, size 68, lot number: 3554. A very nice untouched M35 helmet!
